Everything we know about Dancing with the Stars: Juniors


The spin-off show you never knew you needed.

By Sam Brodsky, Metro

Dancing with the Stars season 26 ended with an Adam Rippon win. The Olympic skater took home the coveted Mirrorball trophy with the help of partner Jenna Johnson, and this fall, DWTS 2018 returns with Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, a pint-sized spin-off of the popular show.

For the first time ever, Dancing with the Stars: Juniors will pair celebrity kids with professional junior ballroom dancers.

If So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation taught us one thing, it’s that junior dancers are great at what they do. Here’s everything we know so far about Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.

Dancing with the Stars: Juniors judges

[post_ads]The judges for Dancing with the Stars: Juniors were announced Monday morning on Good Morning America. Val Chmerkovskiy, the DWTS pro who proposed to Johnson in June, will be bring his expertise as a judge. Joining him is choreographer Mandy Moore and Johnson’s former partner Rippon (who else?).

Rippon was the first openly gay champion of DWTS, and upon winning the all-athletes season this past spring, he told, "I think from the Olympics and Dancing with the Stars, I feel so lucky to share my story and share a little bit of who I am with so many people, it’s just awesome." Now, he’ll get to continue sharing this story with DWTS viewers as a member of the judging panel.

Watch their announcement on Good Morning America below:
